    Hi i have a peculiar problem friends
    I have been using partition magic 8 for long and it never failed me,
    Except yest when i triend to partition my mamoth 100 gb HDD.
    Please its showing the error no 983, and is stopping the partition.
    How can i overcome this?
    Please help me on this, i really dnt know what to do.
    Is It that HP doesnt allow to partition, if thats so, there can be a way to un do that right?

    Congratulations on your new laptop. I always prefer setting up partitions and editing them from DOS. I am sure PQ magic 8 would have a feature to make a bootable floppy or CD to do things from DOS. I have personally faced some errors which I coudlnt get around with in PQmagic 8. Use Ranish Partition Manager to get it done from DOS.
